and the headline is not good news. when you look in the numbers and see hurricane sandy played a role. the defense spending played a role as well as the doom and groom. you are looking for reaction from wall street and they are shrugging their shoulders. we need moreidate to see if it's a one-time blip or the beginning of a trend. >> when you see the headlines like "huffington post" saying consider yourself warned, obviously that would unsettle anyone with millions of people who have been out of work for a year or two if not more. >> right. it's similar to the poll numbers we have seen in the contest that is important to look at one piece of data and realize there is so much else out there. the numbers were not that good, but the housing sector looks better than any time since the great recession. you end up looking at payroll and the jobless claims are at a low place relative to where they were. there is a lot of hope and an adp survey that shows the jobs created in january. we will get the official numbers on friday, but positive numbers and it's important to look at the big picture. this could
of sort of crystalizing what it is his job is. you know, when you are secretary of defense, yes, you are part of the decision-making team for the national security in this country. but at the end of the day, you don't operate in a vacuum. you know, you operate with the secretary of state, the national security advisor and at the end of the day president barack obama is the one who makes decisions. you take out those decisions. to some extent. i had this conversation. i was sort of dealing with this in my mind. they were trying to get him on iran and, like he is horrible on iran. at the end of the day, you know, to some extent the military the defense department is in a vacuum here unless the president orders military the defense department really doesn't -- it's irrelevant whether or not he believes in sanctions or not. >> i think it's pretty ridiculous what these meetings have turned into with cabinet members. we saw it more after barack obama is president. this is chuck hagel, a bona fide war hero a veteran, a republican. >> check. >> a former senator

domestic product. government spending can weigh in, especially in the defense sector. is this something to get concerned about? are we on track for a recession which would be two consecutive negative quarters of growth? >> well, you ask yourself, how could the market shrugged off a report that was superficially this week? the reality was that we knew look underneath the hood, so to speak, and look to some of the details, the consumer spending was decent. the housing was booming. most importantly, businesses started doing capitol spending again. they pulled back in the third quarter, with the camera back in the fourth quarter even though there were all these concerns about this bill cliff. and what it tells you is, there is a lot of resilience in the private sector. ." lori: you are taking a positive spin on this to looking at the bright side, but we are still facing sequestration, these deep cuts in defense spending. we know that the 22% decline in defense spending in the fourth quarter led to this negative print, the big driver of the negative. so if we get even more defense cuts will

. it was the first decline since 2009. it put the white house on the defensive after months of touting steady job growth. >> there's more work to do, and our economy is facing a major headwind which goes to your point, and that's republicans in congress. talk about letting the sequester kick in, as though that were an acceptable thing belies where republicans were on this issue not that long ago, and it makes clear, again, that this is political brinksmanship of the kind that results in one primary victim, and that's american taxpayers, the american middle class. >> okay. what do you think is going on there, joe? >> i think what's going on is that we have spent more money as a government over the past four years than we have in the history of the republic. added $6 trillion in debt. and we have just been on a keynesian spending spree, and the economy's contracting. the idea is, the federal government put some money in, and that's going to create larger job growth across america. it just hasn't happened. so the question is how long do we make this bet? >> robert reich writes about consumer confide
secretary of defense, although it's wise to hold off on changing the letter head for just a bit. >> there is more troubling news coming out of iran today. officials there told u.n. nuclear inspectors that they plan to process uranium two or three times faster than it can now. the possibility that iran might develop nuclear weapons only adds to the tension in this region. israeli warplanes had struck targets inside syria. and tomorrow vice president joe biden is going to head to europe to meet with syrian opposition leaders in europe. against that dramatic backdrop, chuck hagel made his case to be secretary of defense. before his hearing it seemed that he would succeed, but things did not go as planned. hagel had to correct his statement on iran's nuclear ambitious. >> by the way i just have been handed a note that i misspoke and said i supported the president's position on containment. if i said that, it meant to say that i i don't have a position on containment. i recognize i've had more attention paid to my words in the last eight weeks than i ever thought possible. >> just to

was for the president. one is ted cruz, the guy who opposes both kerry for state and chuck hagel for defense. how interesting. two people who have fought for their country, the vietnam war, been awarded medals for their service. ted cruz was never serving in the military, but insists these two gutsy veterans don't deserve the office to which the president has appointed them. don't you just love these people? they don't like the military enough to join it, they dump on people who served and have the nerve to ask for more war. ask the typical hawk what he thought the war was looking back, a bad idea. putting our marines into lebanon, somalia. my appearance experience is they like them all. not only that, but they are always, as i said, ready for another. iraq, yes. afghanistan, yes. iraq again, yes. iran, let's go. why do people listen to these types? why the knee-jerk salute every time one of these armchair hawks itches for another conflict? i'm glad we have kerry now as the same reason i'm glad there was an anwar sadat, a yitzhak rabin. and out of the disastrous suez campaign. i'm glad the hawks
